In 1995, aged 28, Christian Furr became the youngest artist to paint HM Queen Elizabeth II after the Queen personally chose him to be commissioned by the Royal Overseas League.
Furr’s successive works have a adorned the walls of the Saatchi Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, Royal Society of Portrait Painters and in the private collection at the Vatican. In 2004 Furr was awarded the Association of Colleges Award at the House of Commons in London given to further education alumni who have gone on to excellence in their chosen field and in 2019 he had a mid-career retrospective at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum.
Highly sought after for his painting and portrait commissions, the painter simultaneously follows the strong tradition of representation in British modern and contemporary Art throughout his oeuvre. He is collected privately around the world and features in the permanent collection of the Dorchester and the Dorchester Collection’s flagship art Hotel ’45 Park Lane’ , London.
His new 2.7m painting for the newly refurbished Dorchester which features the Serpentine and Hyde Park is due to be unveiled in September 2022
